This is an amazing app for studying all Japanese. Learning the hiragana/katakana with examples below really helps introduce words, and helps getting away from romanji! Kanji is organized very well also. This app should be used by people who already have a brief understanding of Hiragana/Katakana. It's not entirely friendly with those brand-new to Japanese. Look for another app that helps you get introduced to the characters, and then use this app to continue learning. Beautiful application. Having even more words to practice from would be nice when studying Katakana/Hiragana.
今私は日本語を少し分かる Started out as complete n00b to Japanese. Went premium and so far have worked through a majority of the beginner stuff, working on JLPT五. I'm starting to see familiar kanji and words in some of the JRPG's I've been playing. I can't fully make out what's said yet but this is a great start for only being at this for a couple weeks. Nice app.
Retrying after several years. Like it so far, but hope it will work for advanced learners, as the stuff I've encountered so far is too easy. FOR THOSE WISHING TO WRITE QUIZ ANSWERS instead of typing them, I suggest you install a handwriting recognition keyboard, such as Mazec3 (the best) or MyScript Stylus (great and free). That way you can practice writing your Japanese, not only for these quizzes, but for everything you do on your tablet.
Annoying. Can't turn off the keyboard input part of the quiz. Also, when you go to type in characters it puts the cursor to the LEFT of your character. Let's say you want to type きゅう。it would put the きゅand then the うto the Left of the きゅ。it would come out うきゅ。 This is really annoying. If I wanted to type ございます it would come out backwards as すまいざご。.... why... WHY???
annoying input method. the cursor moves to left after inputting kana so i have to keep pushing right arrow key to move back to end of line. was thinking of buying but i'll wait for fix and reconsider. update: thx for quick fix. bought and updated rating to 5star
Typing kanji pronunciation is a feature for which I've been searching for a long time. The inclusion of example sentences, a feature to bookmark notable sentences, and reviewable mistakes make this the best Japanese study app I've possibly ever used. Great work, worth the price!
